Fraser Park Restaurant: Hearty German Breakfast and Lunch
Whenever I’m in the mood for a good, hearty breakfast, my mind wanders to Fraser Park Restaurant. This diner located in the middle of a semi-industrial area has been serving up tasty eats for years and you’re pretty much guaranteed to go away stuffed.
You order at the back counter and then try to find a seat and wait for your order to come out. On most days, it’s busy (especially during the breakfast hour) but the queue goes pretty quick.
Their Denver Omelette is huge with 3 eggs, ham, onions, peppers, and cheese… not to mention the large side of potatoes, toast, and fruit slice.
I opted for the German Breakfast but was disappointed because they were out of potato pancakes. Like the Denver omelette, this German Breakfast comes with 3 eggs but these are scrambled with sautéed peppers, onion, and cheese. This is a meaty plate with sausage, ham and bacon in addition to the hash browns, toast and fruit slice.
I’m really feeling a craving for the potato pancakes they have here… I’ll have to come back for a revisit soon.
Well, it took me half a year to get a chance to come back here and I wound up ordering the same thing. This time, however, the German Breakfast did include one of their thin and tasty potato pancakes – score!
If you’re not in the mood for breakfast, they also have a lunch menu. If you show up on Wednesday, you can order their German Lunch Special ($8) which comes with poached ham, bratwurst, sauerkraut, and mashed potatoes. The ham was super tender and you get two links of that amazing bratwurst sausage. I tried ordering this one time before but I was too early so you have to time your visit right.
I came back for a revisit a couple of weeks later and noticed that they had a new English Breakfast option (under $9 I think) which includes creamy baked beans, toast, ham, sausage, sautéed mushrooms, sliced tomatoes, and eggs prepared to order.
Bit of advice: find the hot sauce that they have on the table… it’s amazing!
